Suzanne CaporaelSuzanne Caporael

 

Suzanne Caporael ('77, MFA Fine Arts '79) began her career with exhibitions at the Newport Harbor Art Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Art and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Now based in New York, this distinguished painter's works are in museums such as The Art Institute of Chicago; The High Museum, Atlanta; The Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Yale University Art Museum. Caporael's paintings focus on transitory natural phenomena she observes at estuaries or salt marshes. When she returned to New York after twelve years in California, she became captivated by melting snow.

Art critic Ken Johnson of the New York Times writes, "Caporael's paintings are a curious mix of the aesthetic and the conceptual... the paintings are sensuous and lyrical as well as rigorously formal."
